Houston Astros New York Mets Spring Training Baseball Game

Jerry Manuel told reporters after yesterdays game against the Astros that the 5th starters spot is Jonathan Niese’s “to lose”.  So that means that Jonathan Niese will be the fifth starter for the Mets. 

I feel as though its the right move on their part. I don’t think that Fernando Nieve is ready to obtain that role in the rotation. But, even though he isn’t going to be their fifth starter, the Mets may put him in the bullpen.  With this roster battle coming to a close its clear that Jon Niese will be the fifth starter for the Mets.
